Piano Parent Tip: Pay Your Teacher On Time
Teachers have a variety of policies about payment, and if you aren't sure what yours is, be sure to ask. Most have a due date and a late fee. Some have a grace period, and some don't. You may have a teacher who is so nice that they don't levy late fees at all or even have much of a payment policy, but I can almost guarantee that they are the ones who are the most frustrated about late payments.You can endear yourself to your teacher by paying on time, and encouraging them yourselves to operate as any other business would and establish a payment policy.
I love it when my parents arrive at the first lesson of the month with a check in hand. The message I hear is, "I value your work, your expertise, and your education, and I want you to stay in business!" Thanks in advance for your support!
